Hijacker bites woman’s fingers

Two women were hijacked and robbed of their possessions outside a complex in Bryanston on 31 August. Janet Isaac, who was driving a Range Rover, said, “The guard was taking some time to open the gate and men armed with guns tried to force us out of the car. They robbed us of everything. There were four men in the car but only two got out. I would guess they stole possessions worth R200 000.”
